Back from Poland! The Salon went really well, and we’re now safely back in Győr, with snow softly falling outside in the darkening dusk. Poznan itself was a wonderful little town – the Centre square looking like something straight out of a fairytale, with its candy coloured quaint little buildings.
It was incredibly cold, between minus 8 and 20, but luckily it was fairly warm inside the Salon Hall. Our stand was lively, with children stopping by to make paper-crowns, following with the theme of Janusz Korczak’s children’s novel “King Matyko I.” It was nice to see that the language barrier didn’t pose too much of a problem, we were able to mime most of the time. Smiles and encouraging nods were all the language we needed.
(You can see how strangely I hold my hand when I draw...)
Personally, one of my highlights was stumbling upon an incredible café down a small side street. I fell in love with the amazing interior, and the delicious array of drinks on offer weren’t bad either. We spent a lovely afternoon hiding away in here, the soft glow of the many lanterns bringing a smile to my face.
